  • 1956 to 1957...9th grade..overcrowding was a problem, only got to stay 1 year because they bussed us to Rivers High the following year..Tommy Sands came to sing in our auditorium a couple years before this..we cut school to go see him at the high school but the principal spotted us and we ran..we could hear him singing, beautiful thing I remember is the writing engraved on the outside of the brick building.."Education is a possession of which no man can be robbed.." I raised my own kids with this expression and it worked...there was a donut shop down the street, we would buy 3 donuts for 10cents..and they were fresh and the best I ever tasted...
